Fully primed and ready for customization, the 4623 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel features elegant details and expertly crafted construction. This 5” square newel is an ideal size for smaller spaces, such as apartments or compact houses, but also works well on larger staircases with many box newels. For an added style-punch, consider including 4991 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newels to the top or bottom of the stairway.

To install your 4623 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. Box Newels may be installed either on the surface of the stair tread or beside the tread. Due to their precise edges, we have found that Box Newels look best on a square starting step.
Join handrail to your 4623 Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel using a rail bolt kit. Many configurations allow handrail to mount directly into the newel; however, if your handrail is joining with your box newel on a rake, you may also require a gooseneck handrail attachment.
Splitting Box Newels
In order to maintain a consistent appearance when handrail must terminate into a wall, we offer Split Box Newels. Attach the partial newel to the wall, and your handrail can be secured like normal. If you would like your Primed Recessed Panel Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the dropdown menu above.
